LOS ANGELES, May 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- RocketFrog is set to change the landscape of casino entertainment on Facebook with the launch of the world's most complete free-to-play online casino. RocketFrog's fast paced multi-player tournaments for prizes include poker (Texas Hold 'Em), blackjack, and slot alongside real-time stand-alone games such as no-limit poker, blackjack, slots, roulette and deuces and joker, deuces wild and jacks or better video poker games.
"We've created social tournaments where players can interact and compete to win real prizes against their friends; not just leaderboard points or status increases," said RocketFrog co-founder and chief executive officer Brett Calapp. "There's no better place to do that than Facebook because that's where your friends are at online. Who doesn't like beating their friends and winning a prize?"
RocketFrog runs poker, blackjack and slot tournaments everyday with small fields (30-100 players) and lightning fast levels (2-5 minutes). A different advertiser each day will guarantee players a variety of prizes ranging from movie tickets, music, food and more. Further, RocketFrog's traditional casino games allow players to choose their stakes and limits so they can customize their game experience. If you're new to the game, RocketFrog has a full suite of learning tutorials, game strategy articles and tips from the pros. RocketFrog gives players a one-stop social casino shop for every level of player.
RocketFrog's centralized game environment allows players to challenge friends, keep track of their bank roll, share achievements, earn loyalty rewards, compare game stats and rankings with friends. RocketFrog brings a slice of comedy relief to social games with laugh out loud virtual gifts and descriptors where players can select from a large assortment of light-hearted gifts to share with friends. New in-game gifts unlock as players build their points in RocketFrog's loyalty club, which adds exclusive benefits and perks for players.

Calapp former was the CEO and co-founder of Centaurus Games, subscription-based gaming network that sold to PartyGaming in 2010. He was also the President of the Ultimate Blackjack Tour, an international gambling tour, online game network and hit television show on CBS. Tom Anderson, co-founder and former president of MySpace.com, joined the company's Advisory Board based on the company's vision for fully branded social game integration. Also joining RocketFrog is reality TV Star and celebrity poker player Brody Jenner, who personally invested.
"Advertisers are always looking for something different, something that engages users and cuts through the noise. RocketFrog delivers. The entire game experience is branded by the daily advertiser and at the same time users get to play for with real world prizes," said Tom Anderson.
